Rangers first-teamer Myles Beerman has revealed he has not yet opened discussions with Pedro Caixinha over his role at the club next season.
Beerman, 18, has been introduced to the first-team setup following the arrival of the Portuguese in March, but the full-back is unsure what role he will have to play beyond the current campaign.
The Malta youth international has made six senior appearances in all competitions since making his debut last month, replacing the experienced Lee Wallace, who is sidelined with injury.
Speaking to Rangers TV, as quoted by the club’s official website, Beerman expressed his gratitude to Caixinha for handing him an opportunity to impress, and admitted he hoped to being talks with the Rangers chief soon.
He said: “I am really pleased the gaffer initially showed interest in me and has now shown a lot of trust in me. He has said he is going to speak to the players but I’m not aware of when or how.
“I haven’t had a chat with him about next season as of yet but hopefully we will soon and see what next season holds. I need to keep working hard to get my spot next season.
“It will be a good challenge for me to push Lee [Wallace] next season because he is such a good player.”
Caixinha has already spoken to a number of senior players ahead of the summer transfer window, and informed them that they have no futures at Ibrox.
Veteran duo Clint Hill and Philippe Senderos are two such players that have been informed they are surplus to requirements at the club.
However, despite the eventual return of club captain Wallace to full fitness, Beerman is not expected to fall foul of Caixinha’s squad overhaul this summer.
